Theatre of Youth (TOY) – $5 off your ticket
The Theatre of Youth (TOY) is part past, part future and all Buffalo. The historic Allendale Theatre has been saved and revived by a company that sets its mission on nurturing the next generation of knowledgeable, engaged youth. With seasons that span topics of health, community, safety, respect, play and much more, the Theater of Youth is uplifting the community with one of the most powerful forms of communal expression.
There is nothing quite like the experience of live theatre and in the digital age it is an experience that youth, in particular, are less likely to enjoy. The Theatre of Youth recognizes the unique value of live performance. TOY believes that having a recognizable cast of local actors has a positive impact on the community. The actors on the stage are not commodities like a DVD; they are neighbors expressing the range of their talent by performing relevant material as great entertainers.
An example of that relevant material will be premiering this summer with their wildly imaginative “Heads on Wheels” production that is set to travel all over Western New York. The traveling play tastefully presents the issue of traumatic brain injury and helmet use. It will inform and entertain, and it may just save some lives. The intimacy of real actors presenting real issues is bound to have a great impact.
So support this historic, neighborhood theater that fills its stage with neighborhood actors and it’s rafters with neighborhood technicians. Ride your bicycle with your Bicycle Benefits membership sticker and get $5 off your ticket.
